SUPERBIKES - Liam Delves equals season's best result for TAG Racing at Brands Hatch

Solihull Editorial 26th Jul, 2023   0

LIAM Delves equalled his best result of the season after standing in for TAG Racing in round six of the Bennetts British Superbike best Championship at Brands Hatch.

With TAG’s regular rider Hector Barbera still recovering from injury, Delves stepped in after recently parting ways with former team Rapid CDH Racing.

And the Solihull rider finished in 16th place in race two to equal his best finish in the Championship this season and was able to complete all three races.

Delves said: “Three races and three finishes on the TAG Racing Honda Superbike powered by Cheshire Mouldings and Woodturnings Ltd around Brands Hatch.

“We ended the second race in 16th with lots of valuable data to take from it into the next race, a big thank you to Team TAG for a great weekend and everyone for all the messages and support.”

Delves spent free practice familiarising himself with the bike as he shaved two seconds off his best lap times during the sessions.




And after qualifying to start on the ninth row of the grid in the 12-lap sprint race, Delves was in 22nd place before a red flag for an oil spill saw the race halted.

The oil spill, coupled with heavy rain, meant the race was unable to restart meaning Delves had to settle for a 22nd place finish.


However, dry weather the following day saw Delves make steady progress from the eighth row of the grid as he eventually came home in 16th place after 20 laps of racing.

In race three, Delves started from the ninth row and finished 20th to round off a solid weekend for the young rider.
